Founded in Denmark in 1986, 3XN are known for projects grounded in the application of ongoing research into how human behaviour both reflects and influences buildings and the wider environment. In 2007 3XN founded a sister company GXN dedicated to innovative research into circular design, behaviour design and digital design. In this lecture we will be joined by behavioural specialist and Head of Operations Susan Carruth and Architect and Senior Partner Audun Opdal, who will show us how GXN’s research is directly fed into the work of 3XN to create some of the most innovative buildings in the world.
Recent projects include Olympic House (2019) – the International Olympic Committee headquarters in Lausanne (pictured top). Olympic House has received three of the most rigorous sustainable building certifications, making it one of the most sustainable office buildings in the world. Another recently completed office building is cube berlin (2020), one of the smartest buildings in Europe, built specifically around in-depth research into 21st century workplace use. Upcoming projects include the Sydney Fish Market and Quay Quarter Tower in Sydney (2023); and T3 and Aqualuna in Toronto (2022).
GXN combines research-based knowledge from the social sciences with design and architecture skills to offer a full scope of specialist services in the field of behaviour design. By focusing on human experience and social sustainability, they create insights, formulate strategies and design solutions to increase human well-being.
This lecture will be digitally streamed and available globally.
